Yes, but currently you can have at most ONE 'nameserver' line in
/etc/resolv.conf (otherwise the old problem will reoccur), I think.

I'm not really sure, because I have changed the library and have only tried
the new lib.

Try it!

Yes, but only for the programs run after you have changed /etc/resolv.conf,
because every program doing namserver lookups reads /etc/resolv.conf when
the resolver code is invoced the first time.

Well, on modem2 it is possible, but not via the OS, but rather needs some
hacks... (ie directly calling Rsconf, I think).
